In any form it is illegal in India.Despite stringentlaws it is flourishing . But there is another type betting too that too openly .During IPL season or any cricket event involving India as a participant all electronic media/tv channel involve in sms betting.In many countries betting is legalised. In india it should be legalised so that nation can be benefited with tax collection. No one can stop the hype of craziness in India middleclass society & they are ready to expend money on such thing,then there is nothing wrong if it is made official and taxable. pkc3000

Don't see a problem with betting in sport as long as the sports people involved in the game are not betting - this is where problems of cheating occur
